Can We Generate 100% Of Our Energy from Renewables?


Can We Generate 100% Of Our Energy from Renewables?

Between 2003 and 2016 the global share of electricity generated by renewable sources grew by 24 percent. Climate change requires the world not only to continue this move towards renewables but to push forward in this move.

Whilst achieving this transition on a global scale will be far from easy there are places where renewable energy generation is already significantly above the global average showing that a fossil-free future is very much a reality.

So far only a few countries have come close to 100 percent renewable energy such as Paraguay, Norway, Costa Rica and Kenya. This was achieved thanks to the install of renewable techs such as solar, wind and hydropower. Solar and wind, however, are becoming the technologies of choice for the 21st century due to the falling costs of solar panels and wind turbines.

Although they have been around for many years wind and solar power are still at a relatively early stage of development compared to older renewable technologies such as hydro. However, there are many success stories to suggest that with continued growth these technologies could soon bring countries closer to carbon neutral.

With that said solar power is yet to reach the same heights as wind but the growth of this technology shows no signs of slowing down and in the near future we can expect to see solar making up an increasingly large percentage of power.
